2007 - Teacher Dr. Rosita Arvigo I had just moved to Oregon earlier in the year and found out the Dr. Arvigo was coming to Oregon to teach the next level and was excited to learn from her personally. This class was more than I could of imagined and am blessed to share this work with my clients. My own personal self-care routine deepened and found connection with my own body, emotions and cycles.

2011 - Tom Kenyon - A five day immersion of the science and application of using sound and toning to move stagnation from the body for it to heal. This is a very powerful modality and I feel that this medicine is being remembered. Tom said that some of the most powerful sound healers, bark like dogs and cluck like chickens. This was an interesting comment and one that penetrated my being with truth....and gave me confidence in trusting the sound that resonates between my client and I.
2012 - Peter Holmes, LAc - This was a 56 hour certification program and we studied specifically on the respiratory system, digestive system and gynecological systems based on 6 conditions. Learning different methods of application, how to custom blend for various ailments. Learning how to sense if an essential oil has been altered and to feel the bio-energetics of an oil for optimal medicinal use.
2012 - Tami Kent, PT - I first met Tami at the Maya Abdominal Therapy professional training and learned that she helps women working internally. This was very curious to me and I asked her to train me....it took her a few years to open this training to LMT's and I was in that first class when she offered this. This has been so enlightening, working with women on such a holistic level, creating sacred space. Since then, I have designed my own treatment session which encompasses my vast knowledge of many modalities and have seen even more miracles happen. Our body is a whole being, not just parts and when I integrate Lymphatic Breast Care, Maya Abdominal Therapy and Holistic Pelvic Care and time....a woman has a sacred space to explore herself and reach more profound transformation.
2012 - Dr Bryan Baisinger, DC - I have noticed that I needed more tools for working with women in their reproductive and pelvic health issue.

This is my first class on this journey of exploring the internal world of reproductive and pelvic health.

2010 - Shamanic Training with Karyn Armstrong - This weekend training was spent in ceremony, journeying and unfolding with the medicine of making a powerful tool, a drum and rattle. I chose a cedar hoop, horse hide and this journey was extremely powerful for me. This horse took me on a journey of what it feels like to be broken down, fighting against the currents of the unknown. Once I yielded myself, used my breath, sought compassion, and only then, did the horse and I find resonance with one another. This drum is a sacred and powerful tool and is only used when you are ready to dig your hoofs in and power through some intense blockages.
2010 - Shamanic Training with Karyn Armstrong - Connecting with a mask that we show to the world, making a mold, painting this mask, dancing this mask and burning to ash in ceremony over the weekend. I found it curious how powerful this was, and how the body danced itself.
